In today’s hyper-competitive, digital age, organizations worldwide need to be able to push code to production and launch new website features and content faster than ever without compromising quality. To address this need, continuous testing has become a critical part of the application development and delivery process.
Tutorials and resources on how to apply test automation in software testing
Apache JMeter is an open source load and performance testing tool developed by the Apache Foundation that has become a major asset in software testing, being also used as a solution for many online commercial load testing services. The book “Master Apache JMeter From load testing to DevOps” provides an impressive amount of knowledge on how to successfully use JMeter, from your first steps with the tool to its integration in a DevOps approach.
Retail is one of the industries the most impacted with the digital transformation. A retailer reputation is at risk if the consumer has a bad experience either in a store or in front of an e-commerce website. Software quality assurance and software testing are important activities to prevent issues. This article discusses some main challenges of test automation in the retail industry.
Even the best software test suites can’t entirely prevent nasty surprises: race conditions, unexpected interactions, faults in distributed protocols and so on, still slip past them into production. Yet writing even more tests of the same kind quickly runs into diminishing returns. This talk presents new software testing automated techniques that can dramatically improve your software testing, letting you focus on what your code should do, rather than which cases should be tested.
Microsoft has recently published the Visual Studio 2019 Preview Release Notes. This version should be the last containing the Coded UI and load testing test features. Microsoft explains the removal of software testing features in future version of Visual Studio by the adoption of open source tools like Selenium, Appium or Apache JMeter.
There are still many people questioning the value of unit testing, and even more for the Test-Driven Development (TDD) approach. In this article, Krzysztof Jelski shares with us five metrics that should improve with the adoption of this agile practice for software development and testing.
Users care as much about how your service performs as they do what job it helps them accomplish. This is why performance is imperative and performance testing a must. So why do we still see so many 503 errors and slow apps? The answer is empathy, a lack thereof. Performance is the most tangible element of “non-functional” quality criteria we regularly ignore until it’s too late.
